Willamette hops from the week of August 5, 2013 – Norfolk County

Early season cultivars such as Willamette are showing signs of maturity in the Norfolk and Grey County areas.  Maturity is not uniform across plantings.  Monitoring hops for maturity is important in order to optimize oil content and minimize pre and post harvest oxidation.  For more information on determining harvest timing please refer to the previous blog posting Harvest and Post-harvest Activities in the Hop Yard: Part 1 – Harvesting.
